    i usually use a good chain and rip them out with the truck, usually only takes 5 min per shrub, and usually charge at least $50.00 for the removal of the shrub, plus the soil to fill it in and the dump fees

    If that's all they want done, I tell them over the phone it's hourly with a 1 hour minimum. Usually I'll also try to get my foot in the door for a whole landscaping job though.
